. Coury replied that he was untroubled. He raised both his middle fingers and explained, using colorful language, that anyone criticizing Mylan, including its employees, ought to go copulate with themselves. Critics in Congress and on Wall Street, he said, should do the same. And regulators at the Food and Drug Administration? They, too, deserved a round of anatomically challenging self-fulfillment.

Shouldn't a lunch order have details, such as what lunch is being ordered?

Of Course The Simpsons Took The Piss Out Of Trump’s First 100 Days Quite Brilliantly [Video]

America’s favourite yellow family have poked fun at the Donald in the past, and they weren’t about to let the mythical ‘first 100 days in office’ landmark pass without firing a shot or two.

Sean Spicer hanging himself, Kellyanne Conway fleeing in fear, Steve Bannon and Jared Kushner throttling each other, Ivanka as a Supreme Court judge – it’s all there.

Hit it:

I'd rather see speeches about how it's okay not to be a massive success. "Statistically, kids, some of you won't ever make it significantly above the poverty line.

Maybe he was just somewhere with poor service, which makes some sort of sense since there's no wifi available either
